Chinese President Xi Jinping has called for openness between countries and denounced racial supremacy as "stupid" amid rising trade tensions with the US.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media.
The remarks on Wednesday were made in Mr Xi's first public address since the US-China trade dispute escalated, with tariff hikes on both sides.
Mr Xi did not mention the US or the trade war directly, but focused on presenting China as an "open" country.
He said different civilisations were not destined to clash.
"Thinking that one's own race and culture are superior, and insisting on transforming or even replacing other civilisations, is stupid in its understanding and disastrous in practice," he told the Conference on Dialogue of Asian Civilisations in Beijing, which was organised by China's propaganda ministry.
